A Canadian political party is raffling off a vacation to Costa Rica, as part of a party fundraiser and to poke fun at Brian Pallister, Manitoba’s Premier much-publicized vacation home in the country.

On their website, Manitoba’s New Democratic Party (NDP) is giving away a $4,500 Canadian dollar ($3,600 in U.S. dollars) one-week trip for two to an all-inclusive resort in Tamarindo, “close by (Premier) Brian Pallister’s private villa.”

Raffle tickets are $20 each and the draw will be on December 9.

The NDP, Manitoba’s opposition, has accused Premier Pallister of being completely disconnectef from work when he is in Costa Rica. The NDP party says it has confirmed, through Manitoba’s freedom-of-information law, from documents obtained showing no records of phone calls between Pallister and senior staff during his most recent trips to Costa Rica.

Pallister has said publicly he doesn’t have to explain his work habits or how he communicates with staff while in Costa Rica.

“I work harder than any Premier that’s been around here for a long, long time,” he said in May. “I don’t have to defend my work ethic to you or anyone else,” reports the Canadian Press.
